When it comes to the living dead, brains aren’t just for eating anymore – a fact that was on conspicuous display last month when a zombie-loving Petaluma educator made an appearance on AMC’s “Talking Dead” television show.

Greg Raiewski, a 28-year-old lifelong Petaluman, showed off his brainpower after he was chosen as the ultimate “The Walking Dead” fan in a competition to select the popular zombie apocalypse show’s top enthusiast. Raiewski, who routinely assigns his Casa Grande High School English students homework based on his favorite TV series, and on the “Talking Dead,” the unique talk show and therapy session that follows every eposide of “The Waking Dead,” was given a rare platform to showcase his fandom to a larger audience March 20.

How did a mild-mannered high school teacher and self-described “comic book nerd” end up as a guest on one of the most-watched television shows in the world, sitting on a sofa next to zombie-fighting stars Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos?

It all started with a video. And it almost never happened at all.
